Micah Peavy and the Horned Frogs bring a 75-72 win back to Fort Worth after a second half shootout against the Kansas State Wildcats. The Frogs remain above .500 in road games this season.

Peavy, who finished the first half with only nine points and went three of nine from the field, came into the second half ready to execute as he recorded 17 points, three rebounds and two assists. His 26-point game marked his new career-high in scoring.

Despite Jameer Nelson Jr. being less dominant on offense with only nine points, he was clutch for the Frogs when they needed it most. Nelson’s deep three with 1.1 seconds left put the Frogs over Kansas State. The game-winner silenced Bramlage Coliseum.

Nelson was active on the defensive side of the ball with a team-high seven assists.

TCU was off to a slow start as the Wildcats outscored the Frogs in almost every key statistic in the first half. TCU shot only 29.6% from the field compared to Kansas State’s 45.5%.

The Frogs lacked in free throw percentage as well, with the Wildcats shooting 88% from the line and TCU shooting 58%.

TCU also lost key player and starting center Ernest Udeh Jr. to an ankle injury a little over halfway through the first half.

Star player Emanuel Miller was absent in the first half with zero points, assists or rebounds yet played the most out of any TCU player.

The Frogs turned it around in the second half, shooting 55.2% from the field and drilling five of eight shots from behind the arc.

Peavy brought life into TCU’s game moving into the second half and showcased his talent on another level.

When the Frogs faced the Iowa State Cyclones on Feb. 1o, Peavy had only two points that came from free throws. He did not have a single field goal made that game.

A week later, Peavy recorded his career-high points and was the momentum behind TCU’s come-from-behind win at half.

The TCU Horned Frogs will travel to Lubbock, Texas to face the Texas Tech Red Raiders on Tuesday, Feb. 20. Tip off is set for 8 p.m. inside the United Supermarkets Arena and will be available for streaming on ESPN2.
